Fees & Structure of Services - After initially being approached and a general discussion, a letter setting out terms and fee structure will be issued. It is my aim to work on a fixed fee basis whenever possible and keep you fully informed at all stages. Please note on most occasions a site visit is required in order for exact fees to be established and this is undertaken free of charge. Also, being a sole practitioner I am currently below the VAT registration limit.
My service is tailored to the needs of each individual client.
The traditional service is a "Permissions Only" service, whereby Planning and Building Regulation Permissions are obtained. After this my service ends, although telephone queries regarding projects often follow and I’m more than happy to answer them.
I also offer a "full service" which would include Planning and Building Regulations Permissions, plus the preparation of tendering documents and contract administration. The exact extent of my involvement does not need to be decided before I am appointed - I can be flexible so that my involvement in later stages can be decided once the project has been well defined.
I also understand that clients have work commitments and I’m quite happy to visit you outside of normal working hours or at weekends.
Clients are always welcome to visit the office at either Carmen, or my home office at Telford.
I’m proud that many clients have developed into good contacts, who are able to refer me to their colleagues, family, friends and neighbours.
